CHRISTMAS ANGEL Mariah Carey
For our extra festive Holiday issue our Eco Angel is the queen of Christmas, Mariah Carey.
With over 200 million records sold worldwide and eighteen #1 Billboard Hot 100 singles, Ms Carey is the best selling female artist of all time.
All I Want For Christmas Is You has become a Christmas classic - written by Mariah Carey & Walter Afanasieff in 1994, it is now the best selling holiday song with over 2 million digital downloads. There are 4 different versions available with the original and still the most popular version featured on Mariah's 1st holiday album "Merry Christmas". All I Want For Christmas Is You So So Def Remix featuring Jermaine Dupri and & Lil Bow Wow was released in 2001 to celebrate her Greatest Hits and last year's Extra Festive version was recorded for her 2nd Christmas album "Merry Christmas II You". The most recent version of All I Want for Christmas Is You was released just this year - the Super Festive version, a duet with pop superstar Justin Bieber. In the new official music video Mariah is dressed up in a sexy santa outfit just like an old hollywood Salvation Army bell ringer.
In the video Mariah shows off her hot new post-baby body, after giving birth to twins in April. Her sexy new curves is thanks to her new diet plan from Jenny Craig. The first time Mum was eager to lose her baby weight after a difficult pregnancy and c-section.
Mariah: "I had a lot of weight to lose because I'd retained so much water. Someone recommended the "Jenny" program to me and it was exactly what I was looking for".
She also combined her new Jenny eating plan with aqua exercise and regular walks with her five Jack Russell pups, which Mariah nicknames "Dem Puppies".
Mariah lost 70 pounds (32 kgs) on the Jenny diet program after giving birth to her twins Monroe & Moroccan on April 30th, 2011. She was so impressed by how quick she shred the baby weight she is now the newest Jenny brand ambassador.
Mariah: "I wanted to help create awareness about healthy eating and losing weight. My pregnancy and weight gain made me realise what some women grapple with all their lives. At one point I thought I would never see my bone structure again."
Mariah revealed her daily menu on the Jenny plan in a recent cover-story and interview with US Magazine. The post-baby plan includes lots of fresh fruits & vegetables along with some of Jenny's classic favourites like her Personal Pizza and S'mores Bar.
Mariah was recently recognised for her charity work receiving a Noble Gift Humanitarian Award in London on December 10th. She founded Camp Mariah in the early 1990's - funded by The Fresh Air Fund, a charity which helps inner city kids make choices about their education and career opportunities. Mariah has also received acknowledgements for her work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and also became an ambassador in 2006 for the World Hunger Relief Movement.
